Meagan and Chris

How We Met

Our little fairy tale began in college at The University of Central Florida when we both joined an organization that chose us as one of 12 people to travel to Peru for a week on a medical aid volunteer trip where we hit it off right away.  Over the next year and a half we did two other medical aid volunteer trips to Paraguay and Haiti and became closer as friends.  Finally, he took me on a Disney breakfast date and then a boat ride around the Seven Seas Lagoon hardly speaking to me or eating due to nerves but eventually mustered up the courage to officially ask me to be his girlfriend!


how they asked

It was our four year anniversary and in traditional fashion he had a romantic evening planned where I wasn’t allowed to know any details.  During the drive I was constantly trying to guess the destination failing on every account and then finally we make the seemingly dramatic turn towards the beautiful Waldorf Astoria at Bonnet Creek.  Already I was excited and loving life not even realizing what was about to happen.  We were taking a stroll along the waterfront golf course property when Chris says “Oh, let’s have this couple coming up take a picture for us.”  As I’m standing there making sure my hair looks okay and posing for the picture he secretly asked the couple to record instead of take pictures and he’s standing there being all fidgety and I’m thinking “Goodness, just stand still and let’s take this picture so this couple can go on with their evening” and that’s when he got down on one knee!  The rest was a daze not realizing what was going on around me as he said his spiel and I said yes! Next we see staff of the Waldorf walk up with a complimentary bottle of champagne and box of chocolates among many other unexpected amenities before and after our romantic dinner date!
